Scenes From Our Weekend

Jul 29, 2013

How is it possibly Monday already? This weekend flew by, like all they always do! 

 I started off the weekend with a girls shopping date with Caycee, I wanted to look for cute stuff for baby girl but found nothing! 

 I did however manage to snag these Rebecca Minkoff sandals for half price. I found them at Shoes on King– can you believe I have never been in there before? They have a great shoe selection, and a huge sale going on right now,  and the owners were super nice and helpful- not pushy at all! I am so in love with my shoes, they are suede so I plan to wear to them into fall too! 


I could not find the flat version anywhere online but they had a few sizes left at Shoes on King for any of you locals.  I did find the heel version online at Revolve Clothing, which I equally love.

I tried on this super cute long sleeve maxi at F21 but didn’t buy it, probably should have for $19.  It was so comfortable.  It comes in gray and black too.  I love the idea of long sleeved maxis for the fall.

Friday night we ate dinner at the Yacht Club. My sister and her husband were in town and we had so much fun.  My sister is the skinniest person ever post baby.

 I got in alot of quality time with my nephew.  Its a good thing I am already pregnant or he would be giving me baby fever.  He is the sweetest baby ever.

My sister bought all the new flavors of the Lays chips and we tried out the Sriracha.

They were good with a bit of heat but didn’t really taste that much like srirachia.

We actually ate alot of junk food all weekend.  Sterling and I stopped at the gas station and we picked up some Bugles.  I used to love these growing up and had not had them in years.  Sterling loved them and I guess all kids think to put them on their fingers- I know my sister and I always did.

For brunch we tried out a new restaurant on James Island, Cory’s Grilled Cheese.  They have a food truck and just opened a place off Maybank.  We tried 4 sandwiches off the menu and they all were awesome!  We will most definitely be eating here again!  I had Cory’s Famous Grilled Cheese it seems weird but it was so good- Cinnamon Raisin Bread with Muenster Cheese, Bacon, and Honey Mustard. 

I had the best surprise gift in the mail this weekend.  Sweet Sarah from Social Dress Shop sent me this dress I had been eyeing as a congrats on having a baby girl.   The dress is on sale right now and I can’t say enough good things about it.  The colors are so gorgeous in person.  It is such a fabulous maxi, there are only a few left so snag one before they are gone!  It is perfect of you are pregnant because the body part is loose.

Have a great Monday!  I am off to pick up paint samples for the nursery, I have to make a decision by this weekend so my Dad can help me paint!

  27. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post. Sherwani for men
